Day 8: Red Mantis Assassin
This wasn't the mini I was referencing yesterday. My workday ended up lasting several hours longer than expected so I switched days with this one.
This mean looking fella is a Red Mantis assassin from Reaper's pathfinder line. I bought him to be a part of my Dark Sun game as well. Once the adventurers had become a big enough nuisance the main antagonist would send this guy to take care of them. The reason I stalled on this mini was because I was at a loss for how to paint his weapons. Although now that the game is over I figured I'd go ahead & try a fancy colored metal technique I'm trying to figure out. This probably wasn't the best mini to try it on, but it does make it stand out a bit.
